Andrew R. Butler, creator/star of the Lortel Award-winning Rags Parkland Sings The Songs Of The Future, Jonathan Larson Grant recipient, and four-time Drama Desk nominee makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in an evening of tunes from his unconventional songbook.
Expect a rollicking night of barn-burners and bluegrass ballads from Butler’s Floridian gator shows, Southern Gothics, and bunny murder mysteries– manifested with the help of his swamp-rock band and special guests from Broadway and beyond. Andrew’s shows are as funny as they are touching- using absurdity and humor (and fully sentient humanoid robots) to fill us up with the heart of the human experience.
